The College of Family Physicians of Canada will hold a debate on medicinal marijuana use on Tuesday.
Dr. Mel Kayhan and Dr. Mark Ware are set to go head-to-head as the country gets ready to legalize recreational marijuana for those over the age of 18.
Dr. Kayhan has argued that here is little clinical research to support cannabis use for therapeutic purposes and that patients should consider the drug’s potential harms.
Dr. Mark Ware however argues that although clinical research on marijuana is limited, the stigma surrounding the drug has kept many doctors in the dark when it comes to its medicinal benefits.
